Facebook has hired Nick Clegg, the former UK deputy prime minister, as its head of global affairs and communications.

Clegg, 51, has been hired as Facebook struggles to cope with mounting political pressure over issues including fake news, data protection and the threat of government regulation.

The former head of the Liberal Democrats will move to Silicon Valley in January, the FT reported. He will succeed Elliot Schrage, who announced in June that he was leaving Facebook after a decade.
